Governor Headlines Winter Commencement 

"One of these days, I'm going to make it 
big. " (From a UNH radio advertise- 
ment.) 

Quoting this ad, Connecticut 
Governor Lowell P. Weicker, 
Jr., the principal speaker at the 
university's winter commencement 
exercises held January 15, said: 
"That says everything there is to say 
about today's celebration. This day 
is about potential. ...This day is about 
the future. ..your future." 

Relating their prospects to his 
work as governor, Weicker told the 
graduates that his efforts to put 
Connecticut's economic house in 
order will mean a more stable future 
and better job opportunities for 
them. 

"Connecticut has no future with- 
out you," he said, "and you would 
have no future in [this state] had we 
not brought everything we had to 
bear on righting the financial ship of 
state here." 

During the commencement, at 
which more than 750 students were 
eligible to receive undergraduate 
and graduate degrees earned either 
last August or in December, Weicker 
and Judith S. Rodin, currently 
provost of Yale University and

New Haven, were the ninth and 
tenth persons to receive doctorates 
from the university since the Sc.D. 
program was licensed in 1986. 

Besides Weicker, Rodin and

Firsts Mark Fall 1993 Bartels Fellowship Event 

Two "firsts" marked the fall 1993 
Bartels Fellowship. Frances 
Friedman, a leader in the public 
relations industry, was the first 
woman to be named a Distinguished 
Bartels Fellow at UNH. Moreover, 
Friedman was greeted on the stage 
of Dodds Hall Auditorium by Clare 
Sweeney, the first female to serve as 
president of the Day Student Gov- 
ernment on campus. 

As if those firsts weren't enough, 
Friedman, the first woman to head a 
major international public relations 
agency (GCI Group, 1984-91) and 
currently managing director of L.V. 
Power & Associates of New York 
City, captivated nearly 250 students, 
faculty members and guests with 
her fellowship address — a multi- 
media presentation entitled "Paint- 
ing Faces: The Art of Public Rela- 
tions." 

The purpose of a public relations 
effort — defined by Friedman as the 
"art of painting faces" — is to present 
the best features of a product or 
service while "shadowing over" its 
negative aspects. She cautioned, 
however, that all public relations 
materials must be truthful if they are 
to succeed. One need not call

attention to faults, she explained, 
but one must never falsely represent 
the facts. 

Videotapes of several examples of 
Friedman's award-winning work 
illustrated her points about quality 
public relations and its role in 
today's business world. Highlights 
included a comprehensive public 
relations campaign to introduce a 
new Reebok shoe and a promotional 



piece on the art of Mexico. 

As part of her day-long stay on 
campus, Friedman participated in 
meetings, discussions and classes 
with undergraduate students and 
faculty from the UNH School of 
Business and attended an informal 
luncheon. Along with the fellow- 
ship address, a visit with students in 
the Executive M.B.A. program 
rounded out her day. □

Plans in Works to Expand Cyprus College Relationship 

UNH is exploring the possibility of 
adding more programs to its coop- 
erative educational agreement with 
Cyprus College in Nicosia, Cyprus, 
says Provost James Uebelacker, who 
travelled there last fall. "A master's 
degree in computer science may be 
one option," he said. "Cyprus 
College has impressive computer 
facilities and excellent computer 
science programs." The current 
agreement enables students at 
Cyprus College to receive the 
M.B.A. degree from UNH. 

UNH's cooperative educational 
agreement with Cyprus College has 
taken various forms since its incep- 
tion in 1981. The original agreement 
enabled Cyprus College students to 
transfer to UNH, and their credits 
were accepted through an articula- 
tion agreement. 

In 1987 a new agreement between 
UNH and Cyprus College was 
signed under which part of the 
university's M.B.A. program would 
be offered at Cyprus College, using 
the same curriculum and textbooks 
as offered at UNH. Under this 
agreement, faculty credentials are 
approved by UNH, and academic 
standards are based on the same 
criteria as those applied to UNH 
students. All textbooks are in 
English, and the fuU curriculum is 
taught in English. 

Until now, Cyprus College stu- 
dents have been required to take the

final third of the degree program in 
West Haven. However, in 1993 the 
original agreement was once again 
expanded such that the full curricu- 
lum may now be offered in Cyprus, 
with the final courses to satisfy 
residency requirements taught by 
UNH faculty on the Cyprus College 
campus. The first contingent of 
UNH faculty will be sent to Cyprus 
this year. Moreover, M.B.A. students 
from the main campus may now take 
courses in Cyprus if they choose. 

Uebelacker's trip to Cyprus 
followed President Lawrence J. 
DeNardis' visit there in January 



1993, when he met with Cyprus 
College Director General Andreas 
Eleftheriades, a Pace University 
M.B.A. graduate who received an 
honorary degree from UNH in June 
1993. "I was very impressed with 
the college, the staff and facilities," 
said DeNardis. 

According to M.L. McLaughlin, 
dean of the university's School of 
Business, who has also toured the 
Cyprus campus, "Cyprus College 
has a state-of-the-art facility. The 
college draws students not only 
from Cyprus but from the entire 
Middle East as well." □

Forum on Minority Hiring in Sports Management 
Packs Dodds Hall Auditorium 



It was standing room only in Dodds 
Hall Auditorium on November 3 
when a high-powered panel gath- 
ered to discuss the topic of "Minor- 
ity Hiring in Sports Management." 

The eighth in a series of "Ethics in 
the Workplace" symposia held at the 
university since April 1990, the 
program focused on the disparity 
between the number of blacks and 
other minorities on the nation's 
professional and collegiate sports 
teams and the level of minority 
participation in the management of 
those teams and in other segments 
of the $63 billion industry. 

Featured panelists included 
Francis T. (Fay) Vincent, Jr., former 
commissioner of Major League 
Baseball; Richard E. Lapchick, 
director of the Center for the Study 
of Sport in Society at Northeastern 
University; and Gail Hunter, ac- 
count supervisor for business 
development at Major League 
Baseball Properties in New York 
City. 

Commentators were John C. 
Daniels, then mayor of New Haven 
and a long-time college football 
officiator; Allen L. Sack, professor 
and coordinator of the management 
of sports industries degree program 
at UNH; and Byron Campbell, a 
student in that program. Joel Marks, 
associate professor of philosophy, 
served as moderator. 

Recalling his hiring efforts while 
Baseball Commissioner, Vincent said 
his goal was always to "do the right 
thing." That meant concentrating 
not only on fairness but on solid 
business practice, he reminded the 
audience. "It's just plain good 
business to be sensitive" on the issue 
of minority hiring, he said. 

Noting that inequalities do exist, 
Vincent said that "people [will] 
make the difference" in overcoming 
them. "It's people who hire, people 
who establish priorities." And, he 
stated, it's people who will provide 
the leadership for change. 

Hunter concurred. Recounting her 
personal experiences as a black 
female trying to break into the field, 
she said, "There is no easy way... but 
what is needed is a commitment 



from the top to 
seek minority 
candidates," and 
not just go with 
the "same old 
crowd." 

Lapchick, 
whose father, Joe 
Lapchick, one- 
time coach of the 
New York 
Knicks, brought 
the first black 
player into the 
National Basket- 
ball Association, 
pointed out that, 
although the 
situation is poor 
in professional 
sports, it is worse 
on the college 
level. Citing 
recent statistics, 

he noted that of 1,165 head coaching 
positions in the five main college 
sports, only 52 are held by blacks. 
C5nly 111 of 5,000 assistant coaches in 
those sports are black, he continued. 

Despite the problems, the panelists 
agreed that progress has been made. 
"But we still have a long way to go 
to ensure that the rules of the game 
are the same for everyone," said 
Hunter. 

Commenting on the discussion, 
Daniels noted that there are very few 
minorities among those who offici- 
ate at sports events — and also few 
minorities in the stands, especially at 
professional games. He further

Marks during the "Ethics in the Workplace" symposium. 

emphasized that sports can be an 
entree to education for many young 
people. Citing his own case, Daniels 
remarked that sports had, in fact, 
kept him in the game of education. 

Other statements centered on 
whether the lack of minorities in 
sports management is due to preju- 
dice or to a dearth of qualified 
minority applicants. Following a 
spirited question-and-answer 
period, panelists and audience alike 
appeared to agree that minority 
talent must be sought out and that 
executives of sports firms must take 
the lead in bringing more minorities 
into sports management. □

Distance No Obstacle to Family From 
Alaska on the Road to West Haven 



News of the excellence of UNH's 
forensic science program has spread 
far and wide. So far, in fact, that 
Larry Block loaded his family into a 
motor home last August and drove 
all the way from Alaska to enter the 
program. 

"It took about two weeks," Block 
said of the roughly 5,000-mile trek to 
UNH from Palmer, Alaska, about 40 
miles north of 
Anchorage. "The 
motor home is fully 
self-contained, so we 
had what we 
needed." 

What they didn't 
have was a lot of 
room to roam inside 
the 28-V2-foot 
vehicle. Larry cmd 
his wife, Karen, 
brought along their 
three young chil- 
dren, Larry's 
mother, their black 
labrador and their 
cat. "The dog and 
Mom fought over 
the front seat quite a 
bit," Block laughed. 

Remarkably 
enough, cabin fever 
didn't strike very often during the 
journey. "The kids were really 
good, but they did start to get tired 
of all the games we brought along 
for them to play with," Block said of 
his son, aged 5, and two daughters, 
aged 3 and 1. "The TV kept them 
occupied a lot." To break up the 
trip, the Blocks stopped at play- 
grounds and campgrounds when- 
ever they could, and the group also 
spent a few days with Larry's sister 
in Wyoming and some time with 
relatives in Nebraska. 

Bom and raised in Alaska, Block 
received an associate's degree in 
police science from the University of 
Alaska in 1979 and served 15 years 
as a police officer in Palmer before 
taking a medical retirement. "After 
1 retired, I worked with a vocational 
rehab center for a time while 1 
decided what to do next," he said. 
"I like working with criminal 
evidence, and a friend who worked 
in the crime lab in Alaska recom- 



mended I get into forensic science." 

After looking into three under- 
graduate forensic science programs 
offered in the U.S., Block decided to 
apply to UNH. "I heard this was a 
great program and I decided Con- 
necticut was the best place for the 
family to be," he said. 

Karen Block, a native of England 
who was living in Kenai, Alaska 




UNHorbust! "I'mreally glaa ::: ' : . ■■■i 
xoay," said Block, shown here with Karen and the kids 



LoniC iUl tni 



when she met Larry, also entered 
UNH last fall. "She's in the medical 
technology program, and we're both 
expecting to get our bachelor's 
degrees in three years," Block said. 

"The people at UNH have been 
super right from the start. Dick 
Baker of Campus Security was a big 
help, and the dean of admissions, 
Steve Briggs, even came by to help 
us move furniture when we finally 
found a place to live in Clinton. 

Once Block graduates, he intends 
to return to Alaska to work in a 
crime lab. "I'll be handling criminal 
evidence, fingerprints, powder 
bums, blood spatters, that sort of 
thing, to help interpret what hap- 
pened at crime scenes," he said. 

"The forensic science program at 
UNH is fantastic, and I'm really glad 
we took the trouble to come all this 
way," Block said. "I'm anxious to 
graduate and take what I've learned 
back to Alaska." □ 



New Dean at 
UNH Branch 

Jerry C. Lamb has been ap- 
pointed to the new position of 
campus dean at UNH's South- 
eastern Connecticut branch in 
Groton. 

Lamb will direct the operations 
of the branch campus, which has 
served up to 1,000 students per 
term, as well as develop and 
market the academic programs 
offered there. 

"The major challenge for the 
southeastern region is to re- 
spond to the great economic 
changes taking place there," 
Lamb said. "The district has 
always been heavy in defense," 
he continued, "but now we're 
seeing the student orientation 
move away from the defense 
business and technical areas to 
other areas, such as tourism." 

Lamb comes to UNH from 
Contraves USA, Inc. of Tampa, 
FL, where he had served as gen- 
eral manager of the Simulation 
and Systems Integration Divi- 
sion since 1990. Prior to that, he 
was chairman of the board of 
directors of SEATECH, an orga- 
nization created to stimulate 
new businesses in southeastern 
Cormecticut (1987-90); president 
and chief executive officer of 
Ship Analytics of North 
Stonington (1982-90); and a man- 
ager at the Naval Underwater 
Systems Center in New London 
and Newport, RI (1970-82). 

Lamb's academic affiliations 
include the University of Con- 
necticut, Mitchell College and 
Connecticut College. At the 
latter institution, he was both a 
visiting lecturer in psychology 
and computer science and direc- 
tor of the computer center. 

"We need to continue to offer 
new programs, such as the 
master's degree Ln education 
introduced this fall," Lamb said 
of his plans for the branch. "We 
will also serve those in transi- 
tion, who are reentering the 
work force." 

"Our goal," he concluded, "is 
to become the leading four-year 
comprehensive educational insti- 
tution in the southeastern area."

"The bottom line is gracious

Although the managers, from 
the Marriott Corporation, 
Holiday Inn, Quality Inn and 
the Saybrook Point Inn, target 
different groups of clientele, 
they aU stressed that human 
resources is a vital component 
in the hospitality industry. 

Warner said the class had the 
opportunity to query the panel- 
ists on such functions as food 
and beverage service, engineer- 
ing and maintenance, and mar- 
keting and sales. "It's the kind 
of event that bridges the gap

cooperation between local area 
businesses and education.

Distinguished Alumni to be Honored 
at Scholarship Ball in April 



Four graduates have been selected 
to receive Distinguished Alumnus 
awards by UNH's Alumni Associa- 
tion this year. Those to be honored 
at the 11th Annual Scholarship Ball 
on April 9 are Frederick W. 
Farnsworth, E.M.B.A. 79, Mary M. 
Hart, B.S. 75, Thomas K. Lewis, Jr., 
B.S. 74, M.S. 76, and Ronald T. 
Urquhart, B.S. '81, E.M.B.A. '90. 

"April in Paris" will be the theme 
of this year's springtime ball, to 
begin at 6:30 p.m. in the North 
Campus Athletic Complex. The gala 
will feature a gourmet dinner with 
dancing to the music of City Lights. 
A bidder's delight— a spectacular 
silent auction featuring 100 goods 
and services — will add to the 
evening's excitement. 

Stephen B. Dunnigan, B.A. 82, 
M.B.A. '90, is chairman of the ball. 
Assisting him are Sara Miller-Brooks, 
B.S. '93, in charge of food and bever- 
ages, and Carolyn Bell, B.S. '87, han- 
dling entertainment and decorations. 
The Distinguished Alumni selection 
committee was chaired by Ronald 
Marming, M.P.A. '78 and included 
11 UNH graduates and staff who 
volunteered their time. "As in the 
past, this year's Distinguished 
Alumni reflect outstanding achieve- 
ment not only in their professional 
and business careers, but also in 
their personal lives as activists and 
leaders in a wide range of conmiu- 
nity affairs," Manning said. Added 
Alumni Council President Edward J. 
Drew, B.S. '75, M.S. '86, "Those the 
Alumni Association honors demon- 
strate the fine quality of a UNH 
education and their achievements 
enhance all of our degrees." 

Frederick W. Farnsworth 

Frederick W. Farnsworth is looking 
forward to 1995. It will mark the 
centennial of Eastern Elevator 



Company, Inc., of which he is 
president. The company, which 
manufactures and provides mainte- 
nance for passenger and freight 
elevators, was founded in 1895 by 
Famsworth's grandfather, Frederick 
B. Farnsworth, a one-time New 
Haven mayor very active in the 
community affairs of his day. 

Among the many organizations for 
which Farnsworth has served as 
director are the New Haven Cham- 
ber of Commerce, the Easter Seal 
Society of Connecticut and the New 
Haven YMCA. He has also served 
as president of the New Haven 
chapters of the Kiwanis Club and 
Goodwill Industries. From 1986 to 
1989, Farnsworth was commissioner 
of the State Ethics Commission. 

Mary M. Hart 

Her work as a public relations 
professional with 16 years of experi- 
ence in corporate, goverrunental and 
media positions, is but one side of 
Mary Hart's life. Community affairs 
is the other side. Active in the 
Greater Hartford Chamber of 
Commerce, Hart serves on its 
Council on the Environment, 
Women's Executive Committee and 
Board of Directors. She is also a 
member and director of the Opera- 
tion Fuel program. Economic 
Resource Center, Inc. and the 
Connecticut Energy Foundation. 
Employed at CNG since 1985, Hart 
currently manages a budget of over 
$700,000 as director of Investor and 
Public Relations for the Cormecticut 
Natural Gas Corporation. 

Thomas K. Lewis, Jr. 

His A.S. degree in culinary arts, 
Lewis once wrote, [enabled me to] 
"cook my way" through UNH with 
jobs in local restaurants, country 
clubs and hotels. 



Lewis made the successful transi- 
tion from chef to a computer science 
expert when he graduated with his 
B.S. in business administration 
magna cum laude and his M.S. in 
computer science. In 1980 the two 
disciplines converged when he 
became director of management 
systems for the Marriott Corpora- 
tion, responsible for a budget of over 
$2.5 million. 

The Reagan Administration 
engaged Lewis in 1982 as its direc- 
tor, automated systems, for the 
Executive Office of the President. 
He later became vice president, data 
processing, for the First Boston 
Corporation, one of the world's 
leading investment banks headquar- 
tered in New York City. 

Lewis moved to Baltimore, Mary- 
land in 1993 to become senior vice 
president and chief of information at 
U.S.F.& G. Insurance Corp. He 
currently manages over 600 employ- 
ees and monitors a $78 million 
budget. 

Ronald T. Urquhart 

To start from ground-level in the 
highly competitive credit card field, 
and in less than 10 years to develop 
750,000 accounts with over $1 billion 
in outstanding charges, would seem 
a24-hour-a-dayjob. Not so for Ron 
Urquhart, first vice president of 
consumer credit at People's Bank, 
where he has directed credit card 
operations since 1984. 

Urquhart currently serves on the 
executive board of the Quinnipiac 
Council of the Boy Scouts of 
America, is a board member and 
past president of the St. Joseph's 
School Board, and is an active 
member of the UNH Alumni Council. 

He has been a pioneer of innova- 
tive credit card marketing plans, 
creating, for example, the first credit 
card aimed for the Hispanic con- 
sumer and marketed through the 
Telemundo Television network. 
Working in conjunction with SNET 
in 1989, People's Bank was the first 
to offer on one card the convenient 
combination of credit card, telephone 
calling and cash card privileges.

Alumni Profile: 



Jeffrey P. Hazell, owner and president, 
Bar Harbor Lobster Company, Inc. 



"At 15, 1 knew I wanted to be in 
the restaurant field," said Jeffrey P. 
Hazell, B.S. '83. "I thank UNH for 
helping me make that drean\ come 
true." 

While many wait a lifetime for 
success, Hazell realized his dream in 
less than a decade. Owner and 
president of Bar Harbor Lobster 
Company, Inc. in Orlando, Florida, 
the 33-year-old entrepreneur runs 
one of the largest wholesale fish 
businesses in that state. 

How did the Marblehead, Massa- 
chusetts native work his way up so 
quickly? "I decided on UNH 
because I could combine my career 
interests with football," said Hazell, 
who received his UNH degree in 
Hotel, Restaurant & Tourism 
Administration (HRTA). "I really 
liked the program and learned a 
lot — and I also enjoyed being a 
second stringer on the football team." 

During his junior year at UNH in 
1982, Hazell accepted a semester's 
internship in Disney's "Magic 
Kingdom College Program" in 
Orlando, Florida. "That was fim 
and gave me a chance to apply what 
I'd learned in some intensive 
restaurant experience." He contin- 
ued on-the-job training during his 
senior year at UNH by taking

reception hosted by Hazell in Orlando last 
December. 



evening work at area country clubs 
and restaurants, then used the four- 
week winter break to test the waters 
in all areas of restaurant manage- 
ment. 

Upon graduation, Hazell returned 
to Orlando and in 1986 began a 
lobster distribution business out of 
the garage of his home. "I had a 
lobster tank there with lobsters 
imported from Maine, and I was 
wholesaling about 1,000 lbs. a month 
right from the garage to Orlando 
restaurants," he recalled. 

Today, Hazell's business has 
skyrocketed to a full-line monthly 
distribution of 250,000 lbs. of lobster 
and other seafood to restaurants 
throughout the state of Florida. He 
also provides cooking services. His 
25,000-square-foot warehouse in 
Orlando employs 140 people and 
maintains 25 trucks. He also runs a 
chain of two Boston Lobster Feast 
restaurants. 

Good things are happening on the 
homefront for Hazell as well. He 
and his wife, Telia, a dental hygien- 
ist, are expecting their first child in 
April. "We found out it's a boy," he 
said. "It's pretty exciting." 

Last December, Hazell hosted a 
lavish lobster feast in Orlando for 17 
UNH alumni, and he hopes to hold 
another reception in March. He has 
taken the first steps toward estab- 
lishing a UNH alumni club in

Florida. "I've gotten an enthusiastic 
response so far, and I hope to 
develop an official membership 
soon." 

"It's very important that alumni 
help UNH grow and get better," 
said Hazell, "so that the university 
can keep serving students in the 
future so they have the kind of 
success I've had." A member of the 
President's Circle since 1989, Hazell 
donated his first $1,000 to UNH just 
six years after graduation. 

"It's really a great program there, 
and I can't say enough about it," he 
concluded of his UNH experience. 
"UNH helped me get where I am 
today." Judging by Hazell's accom- 
plishments to date, he's sure to go 
even farther. □ 



Alumni Celebrate Season's Opening 



When the Chargers launched 
their 1993-94 home basketball 
season on December 7, with 
men's and women's games 
against Springfield College, the 
UNH Alurrmi Association hosted 
a special opening-game celebra- 
tion for alumni and their families. 
Festivities included a halftime 3- 
point shootout contest featuring 
the celebrants. Former UNH 
women's basketball star Carolyn 
Bell sank hoops six out of 10 times 
to win the contest. 

Alumni had the opporturuty to 



meet the coaches of both basket- 
ball teams in a post-game recep- 
tion held in the gymnasium's 
Athletic Hall of Fame. Even 
though the men's team lost in the 
final minute of the game, the 
women won handily. 

Said Edward Drew, Alumni 
Association President, "I know 
the alumni who attended had a 
great time and I hope that this 
wiU start a trend of seeing more 
alumni at UNH sporting events in 
the future."

Charitable Gift Annuities Benefit UNH and Donor 



You may be able to increase your 
income by making a gift to the 
University of New Haven. A chari- 
table gift annuity can help you do 
both of those things, especially if 
you are 65 years of age or older. 

Here's how it works. A charitable 
gift annuity is a contract between the 
donor and UNH wherein the uruver- 
sity agrees to pay the donor a fixed 
income for the rest of his/her life. A 
gift to UNH in exchange for a chari- 
table gift annuity is partly a gift and 
partly the purchase of an annuity. The 
donor will receive payments for life at 
a favorable payment rate depending 
on the individual's age. Currently, the 
payment rates are higher than a 
person can receive from a bank. 

Rates are particularly attractive for 
individuals who are at least 65 years 
old. For example, a 65-year-old do- 
nor would receive annual annuity 
payments at the rate of 6.5 percent of 
the gift amount; payments would be 
at a 7.7 percent rate for a person aged 
75; and someone 90 years of age 
would receive annuity payments at 
the rate of 11 percent. Payments are 
guaranteed as long as the donor lives. 



To take this example further, a 
man or woman aged 75 who is in the 
28 percent federal income tax 
bracket and who donates $10,000 via 
a charitable gift armuity would 
receive payments of $770 per year 
(i.e., in percent) and would realize a 
tax deduction of $4,691. The same 
$10,000, when placed in a certificate of 
deposit or savings accoiont, where 
earnings are currently averaging only 
2.8 percent, would receive just $280 
per year and would have no tax 
deduction at all. Additional advan- 
tages are available when appreciated 
stock or other appreciated assets can 
be exchanged for a charitable gift 
annuity. 

In short, a charitable gift annuity will 
help UNH provide quality education 
and at the same time allow you to earn 
a greater income than can currently be 
realized from standard savings 
instruments. 

To take advantage of this opportu- 
nity to help yourself and your univer- 
sity, please consider a charitable gift 
annuity. For more information, 
contact Bill DeMayo, UNH's Planned 
Giving Officer, at (203) 932-7130. □

University Receives 
Varied Gifts 



Pfizer Corporation recently 
awarded UNH over $6,000 worth 
of laboratory equipment to sup- 
port a proposed master's degree 
program in cell and molecular 
biology. Included in the donation 
are more than 15 items that can be 
used for refrigeration, storage, 
sterilization and other research 
needs... 

Through its Equipment Dona- 
tion Program, AT&T has recently 
awarded the university's com- 
puter science department 20 per- 
sonal computers and other equip- 
ment valued at more than 
$116,000. Hundreds of colleges 
and universities submit proposals 
requesting the award. According 
to Roger Frey, chairman of the 
computer science department, the 
equipment, including 486 PCs, a 
server and printers, will mean 
greater availability to students 
Siroughout the university. The 
computing system may be used 
for everyday applications but is 
also powerful enough to support 
such functions as a local area 
network, international and intra- 
mural electronic mail, and other 
electronic data interchange... 

UNH has been informed by the 
City of West Haven that the state 
has approved the request of Con- 
necticut companies to receive a 50 
percent state tax credit under the 
Neighborhood Assistance Act, a 
program designed to alleviate the 
state tax burden for Cormecticut 
companies who donate dollars or 
in-kind gifts to state-approved 
non-profit organizations. 

Companies donated nearly 
$129,000 to UNH under the pro- 
gram, which is the largest total 
donated to any non-profit organi- 
zation in the City of West Haven 
since the program's inception 
about 10 years ago. Donations 
were made for scholarship sup- 
port, capital improvements and

since coming to Columbia 
my eyes have been opened

Fall Sports Roundup 



For a team to post a .661 winning 
percentage is quite an accomplish- 
ment, but for an entire athletic 
program that is remarkable. The 
Chargers fall athletic teams enjoyed 
a 61-31 record this year, translating 
into another outstanding season. 

The football team sported another 
undefeated regular season, its 
second straight perfect campaign, 
and finished with an 11-1 record 
including the playoffs. The team set 
an NCAA record for most points per 
game in a season, tying 
Florida A & M's standards of 54.7 
points per game. Sixty-point games 
were not unusual as the Chargers 
offense scored 547 points during the 
regular season while the defense 
allowed 300 fewer points. New 
Haven coasted through the regular 
season, posting wins over West 
Chester, Buffalo, Clarion, Spring- 
field, Carson-Newman, Virginia 
Union, Southern Cormecticut, 
American International, Bowie State 
and Shepherd College. The team 
scored 50 or more points in six of its 
last seven games, with Southern 
Connecticut "holding" the Chargers 
to 47 in its meeting. 

New Haven, extending its regular- 
season unbeaten streak to 20 games, 
entered the playoffs with a 10-0 slate 
and had to put its unblemished 
record on the line against Edinboro 
University. The Chargers held a 
narrow 21-14 lead at half-time but 
erupted for three third-quarter 
touchdowns, putting the game out 
of reach and allowing them to win 
48-28. Roger Graham paced the 
offense with 215 rushing yards, his 
second 200-plus yard performance 
in four playoff games, and scored 
two touchdowns. Tony Willis 
caught two touchdowns while Jim 
Weir threw for over 250 yards in the 
game. 



In the second playoff game, the 
Chargers faced Indiana University 
of Pennsylvania, which had allowed 
just three rushing touchdowns all 
season. New Haven managed five 
touchdowns on the ground — 
Graham scored three of the rushing 
touchdowns while A.J. Livingston, 
New Haven's second all-time 
leading rusher, added two more 
ground scores — but it was not 
enough as the visiting Indians 
posted a 38-35 victory, a win which 
propelled the team to the national 
championship game. 

The football team was not the only 
fall team to reach the playoffs. The 
women's volleyball squad also 
received an NCAA tournament 
bid— for the sixth straight season. 
Head Coach Debbie Chin made the 
most of the bid and led her team to 
the NCAA quarterfinals before 
losing to eventual national 
champion Northern Michigan 
University. The loss ended the 
season for UNH but was a minor 
note in the team's impressive 38-3 
final record. In fact, the Northern 
Michigan match was the only 
Division II loss for New Haven. 

The volleyball season started out 
impressively as the Chargers won 
their first 22 matches before drop- 
ping a contest to Princeton. Follow- 
ing the second loss to Princeton, the 
Blue and Gold reeled off 14 straight 
victories, including a 3-1 win over 
Springfield College in the second 
round of the NCAA playoffs. 
Springfield was one of only four 
teams to win an individual game 
during a match against New Haven 
as the Chargers posted a 119-11 
mark in individual games. 

The women's soccer team impressed 
many despite playing its first season 
as a varsity sport. The team, which 



faced as many as five nationally 
ranked teams during the year, ended 
the 1993 season with a 6-8 record 
under Head Coach Joe Machnik. 

Several players excelled during the 
year including Angle Murray, who 
led the team in scoring with 20 total 
points (nine goals, two assists). 
Freshman MirieUe Derose placed 
second in scoring with 15 total 
points (six goals, three assists); she 
and Murray were the only two 
players to score three goals in a 
game. Murray accomplished the task 
against Salve Regina while Derose 
hit the mark against Concordia. 
Three other players scored 10 or 
more points, namely Tara Meagher 
(11 points), Melissa Jolly (10) and 
Nikki Devaney (10). Nikki Demorro 
handled most of the goalkeeping 
duties, owning a 2.02 goals agairist 
average with 135 saves. She regis- 
tered three shutouts during the 
season. 

The men's soccer team was plagued 
with injuries which caused many 
players to commit to unaccustomed 
positions. The result was a 5-11-1 
record and a 2-6 New England 
Collegiate Conference mark. Fresh- 
man Tony Cartiera scored 16 goals 
in 17 games and led the team with 
35 total points. After Cartiera, senior 
Moussa Ndiaye placed second in 
scoring with eight points (two goals, 
four assists). 

The ivomen's tennis team continued 
to make strides as the squad posted 
a 1-8 record. The victory, which 
came against Bard College, was the 
team's first win in over 25 matches.Q 



Whipple Goes to 
Brown University 

Mark Whipple, who led the Uni- 
versity of New Haven football 
team to its only two playoff ap- 
pearances and posted a 23-2 
record over the last two seasons, 
has accepted the head coaching 
position at Brown University. 
Whipple graduated from Brown 
in 1979 after playmg football and 
baseball for the Bruins. 

An extensive search to find a 
new head coach is currently 
under way.

Graham Wins Harlon Hill Trophy As Nation's Best Football Player 

Nobody does it better! A claim that 
many make but not many can back 
up. Junior tailback Roger Graham is 
one who can make that claim, and 
he has the 1993 Harlon Hill Trophy 
to prove it! 

Graham earned the trophy (the 
Division 11 equivalent of the Heisman 
Trophy) by gaining 1,687 yards on 
183 carries (9.3 yards per carry) and 
scoring a total of 24 touchdowns. 
His numbers were enough to lead 
Division II in scoring (13.8 points 
per game) and to place second in 
both rushing (168.7 yards per game) 
and all-purpose yards (231.9 yards 
per game). He accepted the award in 
front of more than 500 people at a 
special banquet that took place in 
Alabama on December 10. 

Graham holds practically every 
school record at the University of 
New Haven including rushing yards 
in a game, season and career. He 
currently ranks 15th all-time in 
Division II with 4,346 rushing yards 
and needs 1,975 yards to become the 
all-time leading rusher in NCAA 
history for all divisions. This year, 
Graham won three Gold Helinet 
Weekly Awards, presented to the 




UNH football standout Roger Graham (#34j received the Harlon Hill Trophy, given to the 
best player in Division 11, after rushing for 1,687 yards and leading the nation in scoring

player each week, and received the 
1993 Season Gold Helmet Award. 
He also was the first-team AU-ECAC 
player and was a first-team member 
on the New England Football 
Writers team. Graham received the 
1993 ECAC Player of the Year award 
and was named to the Associated 



Press Small College All- America first 
team for the second straight season. 

The tailback rushed for more than 
100 yards in all 10 regular season 
games, extending his 100-yard 
streak to 21 consecutive contests. 
Graham could break the Division II 
record of 24 straight 100-yard games 
next season. □ 



Awards Plentiful For UNH Athletes 



UNH athletes were not only re- 
warded for their efforts with win- 
ning campaigns on the field, but the 
players also received accolades off 
the field, many winning 1993 post- 
season honors. 

Seven Charger players received 
awards this year: tailback Roger 
Graham, quarterback James Weir, 
wide receiver Tony Willis, offensive 
lineman Tom Dempsey, defensive 
lineman Chris Lunz, linebacker Bill 
Covert and free safety George Byrd. 
All seven were selected to the All- 
Eastern CoUege Athletic Conference 
(ECAC) team as well as to the New 
England Football Writers All-Star 
team. Graham earned a spot on the 
Associated Press Small College All- 
America first team while Weir and 
Byrd received second team honors 
from AP. Byrd was the only multiple 
All- America player at UNH, also 
earning a spot on the prestigious 
Kodak All-America team. 

Weir set a school record with 31 
touchdown passes and threw just 



one interception in 266 pass 
attempts, which set a Division 11 
record for lowest interception 
percentage. Willis, the school's 
all-time leading receiver in practi- 
cally every category, grabbed 71 
passes for 1,074 yards and 11 
touchdowns in 1993. The senior 
became the first UNH player to 
record more than 1,000 receiving 
yards in two seasons. 

Byrd led the team in total tackles 
for the second straight season with 
72, edging out Covert who collected 
70 stops. Byrd also intercepted three 
passes this year, one of which he 
returned for a school-record 98 
yards against Bowie State. Lunz 
became the school's all-time leader 
in sacks with 20.5 after securing 
eight quarterback tackles this 
season. Lunz moved from linebacker 
to the defensive line this year. (See 
accompanying story for Graham's 
statistics.) 

In addition, four of the six starting 
women's volleyball players received 



spots on the American Volleyball 
Coaches Association's All-Northeast 
Region team with setter Shala 
Asalita, outside hitter Elise 
Hutchinson and middle blockers 
Shirley Hoyte and Jane Grant each 
placing on the team. Three of the 
four players are newcomers for 
Head Coach Debbie Chin; 
Hutchinson, a sophomore, was the 
only returning starter on the 1993 
campaign. 

In men's soccer, Tony Cartiera 
played a large role in the New 
Haven offense despite being only a 
freshman. The striker was 
responsible for scoring 35 of the 
team's 59 total points, scoring 16 
goals and assisting on three others. 
At one point, the New Britain native 
scored 11 of the team's first 13 goals. 
For his effort, Cartiera earned a spot 
on the All-New England Collegiate 
Conference second team, the only 
UNH player to earn a spot on the 
All-Conference roster. □
